This story contains major spoilers for 'The L Word: Generation Q' episode 4 titled 'LA Times'

When Alice (Leisha Hailey) had suggested that her current partner Nat (Stephanie Allynne) and Nat's ex-wife Gigi (Sepideh Moafi) rekindle their friendship, we had expected the show to take the same downtrodden path — a love triangle destined to be doomed.

What we did not expect — okay, actually, we had already called it — is one episode later, the trio will be participating in an extremely steamy threesome! 

In the latest episode of 'The L Word: Generation Q', Alice is being interviewed by LA Times — her work, her show, her queer life, her partner, their life together.

At the same time, Gigi shows up at the office with the kids and their change of clothes for the shoot. The newspaper gets a photo of the three together around the kids, as a family.

At Shane's (Katherine Moennig) 40th birthday party, after everyone, including Gigi, is sufficiently drunk, Nat proposes a threesome. "I want you," she tells Alice, and pointing to Gigi says, "And her."

Things go pretty fast after that. In what we can vouch to be the steamiest of lesbian threesomes, the scene was just about Alice, Nat and Gigi — one that was not shot for the male gaze, one that was passionate and simply beautiful.

Don't just listen to us, take the word of fans. "The threesome was the HOTTEST SEX SCENE in the entire run of the L Word. HOLY. SHIT," said a fan

But that is not the best of it. We — along with countless fans of the show — are hoping that the makers of 'The L Word: Generation Q' explore polyamory for the trio going forward. 

"I thought (in the) last episode that Alice's relationship was doomed as well, but this episode I got genuine poly vibes from Alice, Nat and Gigi," said a fan.

The fan added, "What if it ends up that Gigi has feelings for both of them, and they both have feelings back and they decide to navigate a poly relationship and it helps their "work/life" balance."

"I feel like non-monogamous relationships are something that the show would probably want to have represented in a positive way, rather than being something that ruins relationships," the fan continued.

"I really like that they’re taking the poly route with Alice, Nat and Gigi. It’s important to explore such topic and there isn’t a better character for this than Alice, honestly," said another fan.

With fans genuinely looking forward to Alice, Nat and Gigi explore polyamory, the show might be heading in that very direction. It would be interesting to see how 'The L Word: Generation Q' dabbles into a subject like that.

The throuple not only has physical chemistry with each other but also an emotional connection. While some fans think that the ex-wives angle might be a messy one, but there is no telling where it will go from here. 

With the next episode literally titled 'Labels', could it be that Alice, Nat and Gigi put a label on their relationship? 'The L Word: Generation Q' airs on Sundays at 10/ 9c on Showtime.
